General Information Regarding Maine's Medical Marijuana Program

Ballot Question 2 was approved by 61% of Maine voters on November 2, 1999. It took effect December 22, 1999.

The Maine law which legalizes a medical marijuana program for the state allows legal medical marijuana patients to receive a medical marijuana recommendation from a state certified physician and apply for a Maine state issued medical marijuana identification card. State residents with an ID card are allowed to possess and cultivate medical marijuana as per state guidelines.

Maine Possession & Cultivation Regulations

Patients or their assigned primary caregivers may not possess more than 2.5 ounces of usable marijuana and may cultivate no more than six cannabis plants, of which no more than three may be mature. Those patients found to be in possession of greater amounts are allowed a “simple defense” to a charge of marijuana possession.
